Illinois football Roundup: Ground game all it takes for Panthers

ERIE, Ill. — Erie/Prophetstown relied on its running game to close the regular season with a 28-7 Three Rivers Conference cross-over win against visiting Orion on Friday night.

The Panthers ran the ball 49 times for 308 yards as they improved their record to 7-2. All their offense came on the ground as quarterback Ethan Howard was 0-for-3 passing.

Nick Williams carried the ball 23 times for 115 yards, Howard rushed for 93 and Chris Bauer gained 79 and scored twice.

The Chargers (4-5), who needed a win to keep their playoff hopes alive, scored first, but the Panthers quashed those hopes quickly.

Bauer opened the scoring with a pair of touchdowns runs — from 6 and 29 yards — in the first quarter. Howard opened the second half with a 67-yard touchdown run, and Williams added a 9-yard scoring run later in the quarter.

Erie/Prophetstown wound up second in the Three Rivers Conference North Division standings after Sterling Newman beat Amboy/LaMoille 48-7 on Friday. Newman handed the Panthers their lone conference loss.

The Panthers will find out their playoff assignment tonight when the Illinois High School Association announces its pairings.
